This story isn't funny.
Yet, as with some things that aren't funny, humor attempts to creep in by a side door, as if it has picked the lock.
This is the story of Daisy Cowit. She is a 21-year-old who, according to police in Orange County, N.Y., was texting at the wheel of her Jeep on Monday.
Cowit is neither the first nor the last to allegedly text while driving. This habit has become second nature to far too many.
In her case, however, her carelessness offered an additional poignancy.
